Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records that document the activities which the Office of Quincentenary Programs coordinated or organized to mark the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's first landfall in the Americas on October 12, 1492. The Quincentenary programs began in 1985 under the coordination of Smithsonian's Directorate of International Activities, Magali Carrera. The Quincentenary activities took place in South and Central America, the United States, Spain, Italy and the Caribbean. The records document the Columbian observances which took place mostly in the United States. Observances included parades, festivals, exhibitions, symposia and other individual events celebrating the voyage.

The records include correspondence between the Director of the Office of Quincentenary Programs, Alicia M. Gonzalez, and other Smithsonian Institution bureaus. Most of the correspondence is between the director and various other national and international institutions such as museums, universities, embassies, archives, and professional and special interest organizations. Other records document a variety of exhibitions, public programs and scholarly publications to commemorate Columbus's voyage to the Americas. All the programs and events highlighted the Quincentenary themes: (1) Magnificent Traditions, (2) Dynamic of the Encounter, (3) Continuity of the Encounter and (4) The Next 500 Years.

The administrative records document travel, contract agreements, accounting records for various projects and functions, interpreters and caterers.

Interspersing the records are documents about a five-part bilingual, series of one-hour television programs entitled, "Buried Mirror: Reflections on Spain and the New World by Carlos Fuentes" (1991), exploring Latin America, past and present, focusing on themes, institutions, beliefs and symbols which have endured or changed; major Smithsonian Quincentenary programs such as exhibitions: "Seeds of Change", "American Encounters", "Where Next, Columbus", "The West as America", "Portraiture in the Reign of Philip II", "Chicano Art: Resistance and Affirmation", "Latin American Pioneers of Modernism", and the "Amazonia: The New World Explored on the Occasion of the Columbus Quincentenary".

The Office of Folklife Programs organized events such as the Festival of American Folklife "living exhibitions" which featured "The Caribbean: Cultural Encounters in the New World" (June/July 1989), the Festival's 1991 and 1992 features of the indigenous populations of the Americas, focusing on cultures of the rainforests, Andean Highlands, Valley, Desert, Northwest Coast, Woodlands and Pinenut gathering cultures, also the symposia, "Seeds of the Past" (1988), "Seeds of Commerce" (1989), and "Seeds of Industrialization" (1990), including Folklife Programs in collaboration with Smithsonian Folkways Records of music and verbal arts, Smithsonian Quincentenary radio programs highlighting living cultural exhibitions, teacher-training workshops and exhibition program books; and a Quincentenary multi-cultural curriculum, five-unit, bilingual kits, "Early Childhood Materials on the Peoples of the Americas" which the Office of Elementary and Secondary School produced for use in pre-schools in the United States, South America, Central America and the Caribbean.

The records pertaining to the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) document co-sponsorship of the Fourth World Congress on the National Parks in Panama, an international symposium, "Non-Imperial Polities in the Lands Visited by Christopher Columbus on His Four Voyages to the New World" (1990) and the 1992 Fourth World Congress on National Parks which was convened by the International Union of Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN).

Correspondence, excerpts from books and book reviews document a variety of books on themes related to the Columbus Quincentenary at the popular and scholarly levels, including Smithsonian Institution Press efforts to develop publications from the many exhibitions and scholarly symposia which took place over the period of the Quincentenary observance.

Included are photographs; brochures; pamphlets; posters; color slides; prints; maps; newspaper and newsmagazine clippings; excerpts from published books; copies of research papers presented at the Quincentenary symposia; minutes of various planning committees; reports to the Smithsonian Secretary, Robert Adams; lists of organizations within and outside the United States, lists of guests to various functions; audio cassette tapes; videotapes; records concerning establishing a Quincentenary newsletter, "The New World"; exhibition proposals; budget projections and justifications; and miscellaneous documents.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of video from the production, "The Buried Mirror: Reflections on Spain and the New World." The five video series was written and narrated by Mexican writer and social commentator Carlos Fuentes and tells the story of Spanish and Latin American civilizations from the beginnings of history to the present. Each video was 59 minutes long and was recorded in both English and Spanish. The Spanish version is titled "El espejo enterrado reflexiones sobre Espana y el nuevo mundo." The videos were presented by Sogetel in association with the Smithsonian Institution and Comision Nacional del Quinto Centenario del Descubrimiento de America (Spain). They were first aired in the United States on the Discovery Channel in conjunction with the Columbus Quincentenary.

"The Virgin and the Bull" (Program 1) explores the mix of people that created Latin America and the uniqueness of their culture. "Conflict of the Gods" (Program 2) retraces and describes the Indian world. "The Age of Gold" (Program 3) details the new found riches and changes in the society, as seen in Don Quixote, Diego Velazquez's paintings, and the baroque style of architecture. "The Price of Freedom" (Program 4) follows the path of the freedom fighter Simon Bolivar and the ramifications of their won freedom. "Unfinished Business" (Program 5) discusses the enormous changes in Spain, Latin America, and Hispanic communities.

Materials include release prints on VHS in English and Spanish, Spanish-language voice-overs on 1" magnetic tape, and edited master and submaster for a promotional video about the series.

This accession consists of audiovisual elements created during the production of videos marking the Quincentenary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the New World.

"Montserrat" (8:15), "Crow Fair" (6:56), and "Corn and Potato" (2:16) all accompanied the National Museum of Natural History exhibition "Seeds of Change" which opened in 1991. "Montserrat" documents the history and culture of the island of the same name which is used in the exhibition to exemplify the effect of the sugar industry on native life. "Crow Fair" documents the Crow event, held annually in Montana since 1904, for which the horse (introduced by the Europeans) serves as a central symbol. "Corn and Potato" documents the introduction of New World crops to the Old World.

"Old Ways, New Visions: Hispanic and Native American Traditions in New Mexico" accompanied the permanent National Museum of American History exhibition "American Encounters" which opened to coincide with the Quincentenary in 1992. This particular video was not produced until 1997 and a version was made for distribution via the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).

Materials include videotapes, audiotape, and magnetic tape. Many of the videotapes are masters. Many of the materials were created by the predecessor unit, Office of Telecommunications.
